What's Your SUV Doing To

What's Your SUV Doing To Our National Security? - I didn't used to be a big fan of Arianna Huffington, but she's talking more and more sense to me. For example, take her recent creation of The Detroit Project. In her words:

The idea for this project came to me while watching -- for the umpteenth time -- one of those outrageous drug war ads the Bush administration has flooded the airwaves with. You know, the ones that try and link using drugs to financing terrorism. Instead of shaking my head in disgust and reaching for the Mute button like I usually do when I see these ads, I decided to channel my indignation. Why not turn the tables and adopt the same tactics the administration was using in the drug war to point out the much more credible link between driving SUVs and our national security?

Isn't that marvelous?

For extra outrage, check out Ms. Huffington's article about how the big three have, wi tht ehelp of Washington, created an artificial demand to boost SUV sales, and thus waste gas and increase use of foreign oil.
